December 2, 2011, Mt. Rainier, Pan Point
« on: 12/03/11, 09:20 AM »

Friday was an absolutely beautiful day but conditions were about the worst I've seen in the Pan Point area.  Lots of rocks, ice, windblown, rain crust, more ice...did I mention the ice?  Just climbing the upper part of Pan Point required a bit of attention if you didn't have crampons.  On the positive side we found some reasonable turns in the upper Edith Creek basin and as long as you've got a wide ski should be able to ride it out.  The Muir snowfield itself could be fine but we didn't go quite that far.  If nothing else, it was a good day to practice your skills in 'variable' conditions but more snow is needed.  Maybe that's why we were the only ones up there?
